To see first hand was is being done to assist with the rehabilitation and safety of bears and elephants in India is a real privilege. Also to see how the people who had depended on using these animals to earn money are trained in other worthwhile work in order to feed their families.

I had the great pleasure visiting the Wildlife SOS Elephant in India with a group of students (27) and we were so happy to see some happier and healthier elephant down the park that were saved from years of abuse or just major illness. GO "SOS ELEPHANTS" you are doing a great job and can't wait to visit again.

If you're looking for an experience of a lasting memory, are a wildlife enthusiast and have teenage kids, Wildlife SOS's centers are an essential visit. This is the kind of tourism that should be promoted in India where only mainstream recreational activities are opted by tourists and do not enhance skills of people belonging to any age group while brilliant...

The reason of being of the Sanctuary is adorable but the experience could be improved adding more interactive activities with the elephants.

We visited both the elephant and bear sanctuary with two kids. Admirable work being done by team in rescue and rehabilitation of the animals. Interesting thing was also how the Wildlife SOS team is helping regeneration of the Kalandar families and their children.

It is inspirational how this group is tirelessly helping animals and giving them a safe area to be themselves. The animals are being given their dignity back and are allowed to express their natural behaviours despite horrific pasts. Please visit and support this group.

I only had a very short time in Agra and wasn't till the day before I was leaving that I realised the elephant sanctuary was so close. I love, adore, worship elephants so I couldn't not go! I emailed them and asked if they had space for the afternoon of the next day, as I had plans in the morning... More

Wildlife S.O.S was a blast. Getting out and walking with the elephants as they go on their afternoon walks and then getting to feed them was awesome. Also, getting to know the back stories about the elephants makes the experience that much better. The staff deeply cares about their elephants and it's nice to see them finally being taken care...
